I've lived in the Chino/Ontario community for more than 40 years and never knew about this place. Met our friends for dinner and was pleasantly surprised! We brought our own wine..there is a corkage fee..and the fresh bread and brushetta was addicting. I had the lasagna and the rest had osso bucco and seafood pasta. Very good food and excellent...

Pizzaioli is one of the better restaurants in Chino Hills. It has a wide variety of food and prices to match. You can get anything from a delicious steak to a simple sandwich. My wife and I went there this week and was greeted by two new specials, one was a pork filled homemade ravioli and the other was a... More

Pizzaioli is always consistent in its fare. The kitchen always offers some interesting twists but not overly adventurous. Good classic appetizer selections, always tasty. Nice place to grab a small pizza. Our favorite is the Margherita and makes a great appetizer to split with company. The Italian classics and all chicken dishes are excellent. We usually do not order the... More

Atmosphere and energy were great. The place was packed despite the torrential rain storm (and the TV telling everyone to stay home!) Service was speedy, friendly and efficient. The food was good, but not great. My daughter said her pizza had more cheese than she likes.

Call us crazy but Italian to us means spaghetti which is not on the menu. We opted for chicken marsala with a ceasar salad which were delish and the Margherita pizza topped with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, garlic, basil and marinara sauce. This restaurant is not that easy to spot from the parking lot. There is outdoor seating as well as... More

While we might not have spaghetti, Karen, we do pride ourselves in offering authentic Italian dishes like risotto, linguine, and the chicken Marsala you tried. That being said, it's wonderful you did enjoy that and the pizza overall! We look forward to welcoming you back next time you're in the area. All the best, The De Grezia Family More

I have been coming here for years now and still the best in the area. I recommend to anyone visiting and take clients when I can.

Delicious main entrees and pizza with an extensive wine list. Good for families and friends get-togethers... Try the chicken or eggplant parm or the gnoche for something different (sorry I don't know how to spell gnoche). Pair that with a nice glass of Cabernet.

This place has been around a long time. It's a rare "local find" with quality service, great food and a long history. With all the "chain" restuarants in the Chino Valley now, it's nice to relax and enjoy a "family" run establishment. I recommend the Jalapeno Shrimp Appetizer.
